I'm not so sure of that.
I'm ready for actual visits. GOSH
Got a feeling one of our 7ths is gonna be a TE...
Given Swaim's injury, probably. Maybe sooner.
I'm cool with taking Brown in round 7.
Given his character issues and injury history, I would not draft him.
That said, they're willing to entertain working with a player's baggage should it come equipped with talent -- as would be the case with Oregon star tight end Pharaoh Brown. The Cowboys met with Brown for a spell after the Oregon Pro Day, no doubt hoping to get clarity into his issues as they may have some interest in putting his name on their draft board.
The 6-foot-6, 255 lb. Brown is dynamic with the ball in his hands, but that's not why his name remains in the news feed. Since 2014, he's been accused of three separate violent acts -- including concussing a fellow player with a punch and a physical fight with his girlfriend in 2015.
No charges were filed and no discipline was handed down by Oregon for either act, and the Lane County Assistant District Attorney found that Brown's girlfriend was the aggressor in their 2015 altercation.
Although cleared, where there's smoke -- there's potentially fire. It'll be up to the Cowboys' front office to determine if they're willing to stock the facility with extinguishers as they work to reel in his off-the-field issues so that they can benefit from strong talent.
Take a look for yourself:
Word is Pharoah took a swing at one of the Cowboys scouting staff after his interview.
Don't want any part of Pharaoh Brown. One incident could be explained away as a "one-off" situation, but three times has to be considered a trend.
we really seem to love kareem hunt,i am in favor of drafting zekes backup,dont trust him to stay out of trouble.
Just under a dozen workouts on today’s pro-day schedule with Toledo and North Carolina State being the headliners. The pro day at Toledo has been completed and here are the results along with some private workout news.
Kareem Hunt ran the 40 on Monday and timed 4.57s, almost a full tenth better than his combine performance. He looked good in position drills and will hold a private workout for the Tampa Bay Bucs on Tuesday.
The New Orleans Saints, Detroit Lions and Cleveland Browns all had running back coaches on hand to watch Hunt.
Tight end Michael Roberts also re-ran the 40 and turned in times which ranged from 4.78s to 4.82s, slightly better than his combine performance. After not lifting at the combine due to a slight shoulder tweak, Roberts completed 21 reps Monday.
The Detroit Lions and Pittsburgh Steelers both had tight end coaches on hand, and Roberts met at length with both teams last night.
In the coming days, Roberts will be working out for the Tampa Bay Bucs, Arizona Cardinals and Philadelphia Eagles.
And Roberts. It's looking like Dallas has some TE interest this year
I've seen Roberts called the best Y blocking TE in the draft. We'll probably be all over him
UCLA's pro day is finished and results are coming in, but here’s what I can tell you: cornerback Fabian Moreau strained his pectoral muscle on the bench press and is presently undergoing further evaluation. He did not participate in position drills.
Prior to the bench, Moreau met with a host of teams. On Monday, he met with the Detroit Lions, Miami Dolphins, New Orleans Saints and Cincinnati Bengals. He also spent time with the defensive backs coach of the Dallas Cowboys on Tuesday.
Bruins receiver and return specialist Kenneth Walker timed 4.32s in the 40.
He is growing on me, if he passes the medicals, I like him.
I think that he has more want to. He will get after the qb.
